I Have A New Favorite Poem

by Roger McGough

I think about dying.
About disease, starvation,
violence, terrorism, war,
the end of the world.

It helps
keep my mind off things.

I came across this in a book called The Nation's Favourite Comic Poems. Thoughts?

  1. My guy's nephew is fond of saying that "reality is why he chooses to spend as little time in it as possible."

    Some may call me weak for it, but I find that sage advice.
